This program focuses on general anatomic hip extension flexibility
This means the movement of the hip in purely sagital plane. No actions in coronal or transverse plane take place. Each of the hip flexors is adressed separately together with other muscle groups, which can restrict hip extension.
Not all hip flexors and their synergists need to be targeted the same way for every possible technique or sport. Some skills require rotation, horizontal abduction or horizontal adduction together with extension. This program targets all of them as a general hip flexors routine.
One of the large problem with mainstream stretching techniques is that, if you can't stretch, you don't know what is holding you back. In terms of the hip flexors, it can be:
- Rectus Femoris,
- Tensor Fasciae Lata,
- Psoas or Iliacus.
- It can also be upper Adductors or even Gluteus Minimus. If one is tight, the rest will not move.
Zaichik Stretches allow you to get each one by itself and lengthen much faster, once you know where the problem is.
The Famous Psoas Muscle
It is worth noting that many people attempt to "stretch the psoas" just because it hurts, or because it seems to be fashionable these days... what if psoas is suffering because of other muscles not working properly? What if we have to strengthen it instead of just stretch it? This program will take care of that as well.
Zaichik Stretching is much more than just isolation positions. The beauty of the techniques is the ability to avoid the pain (sometimes bad enough to prevent progress) or the stretch reflex. EasyFlexibility concepts allow for the muscle to be moved from a number of its distinct actions, each creating a space in the muscle, allowing the other action to move deeper into the stretch.
The only way to experience Zaichik Stretching techniques is to actually try them and watch the results.
Try a Hip Flexors Exercise!
To start with, test yourself: In the deep lunge, knee on floor position, see how far back your hands reach. Try this before and after doing a few reps of the exercise.
For this exercise, keep repeating steps 2 and 3 without coming out of the position for a few reps, and get deeper and deeper every time. This is instant flexibility, this is EasyFlexibility's Zaichik Stretching.
